Corporate Ethics and Legal ComplianceProtection of Personal Information

Toray operates internal rules for the management of personal information and conducts regular departmental inspections. Toray is currently working to verify that its group companies in and outside Japan have appropriate rules in place for managing personal information.

In fiscal 2016, Toray revised the internal rules to address the introduction of Individual Number Cards in Japan. Additionally, Toray established a company-wide secretariat comprising members from departments that handle information related to the cards in their work. While taking organizational, physical, technical, and human security control measures at each department, Toray worked to update related IT systems and train employees. Briefing sessions were conducted for group companies in Japan to communicate basic information as well as Toray Group policies and the need for action.
